Kakaako warehouse to be used for art, public events

UPS once used it as storage space. Now part of a nondescript Kakaako warehouse is slated to be transformed into a pavillion for artistic events and a public gathering place.

The owner of the 3,225-square-foot warehouse bay at 441 Cooke St., Kamehameha Schools, partnered with the nonprofit alternative contemporary arts organization Interisland Terminal in the endeavor called Kaka'ako Agora.

Agora is a word of Greek origin meaning public assembly place. Interisland Terminal describes the envisioned space as a "new concept of public space."

"It is a pavillion that will serve as a canvas for a community that wants to express itself," the organization said in a demonstration video.

Christian O'Connor, senior asset manager for Kamehameha Schools, likened the space to a sort of indoor public park that will add a unique element to the trust's plans for redeveloping nine blocks in Kakaako into an urban village called Our Kaka'ako with seven residential towers and 300,000 square feet of retail and other commercial space.
